The Parks & Recreation Department is continually working to make the City of Frisco a bicycle and pedestrian friendly community. The Hike and Bike Trails Master Plan shows the potential development of a city-wide, hierarchical system of trails that will achieve the goal of making Frisco a leader in the Metroplex for providing residents with safe and efficient recreational and commuter hiking and biking trails. View the Hike and Bike Master Plan and Master Plan Map.

This trail was built and will be maintained by volunteers of the Dallas Off Road Bicycle Association (DORBA), Shawnee Trail Cycling Club and Frisco Cycling Club in partnership with the City of Frisco. Over 1000 volunteer hours have gone into building the trail. Although the trail was built as a mountain bike trail, walkers and runners are encouraged to use the trail as well.
